I'm assuming you have a Marlin model 1889, not 1887, as they never made a model 1887. The 1889 does have a patent date of 1887 on the barrel, so this is a common mistake. Any Marlin marked ".32W" on the barrel will normally be chambered for the .32-20 Win. cartridge.
Yes it does, unless your barrel is stamped .223 .
It should be marked on the barrel.
as long as there are no cracks in the barrel, yes. it simply means not to shoot slugs thru the barrel.
A Marlin model 60 should only be shot with 22 long rifle ammunition. It should be marked on the barrel or receiver and may say 22LR.
Have it checked out by a competent gun smith.
No. Only what is stamped on the barrel.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FIRE MODERN AMMUNITION until a good gunsmith checks it out.
The sizes of shells it accepts will be stamped on the barrel
NO THE AMMUNITION MUST MATCH EXACTLY WHAT IS STAMPED ON THE BARREL. THIS IS AN ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPEN. If you dont know take the gun to a gunsmith and have him check this for you. Not Walmart.
Have a gunsmith check the gun before you fire it.
It should fire until the water gets inside the ammunition and degrades the gun powder. If the ammunition is well sealed against moisture then it will shoot until the barrel clogs or the action rusts.
Depends on the ammunition. Rifled 12 gauge slugs are accurate to about 150 yards
NO The ammunition must match the marking on the Barrel exactly. If you do it is an accident waiting to happen.
I've never seen a Colt AR-15 which didn't have a 5.56x45 chamber. The barrel should be stamped "5.56x45 1 in 7" (or "1 in 9", depending on the rifling pitch).
The caliber of ammunition the rifle uses is usually roll-stamped on the right side of the barrel, just in front of the receiver. For example: if it says "7mm Remington (Rem.) magnum (mag.) you would need to buy that type of ammunition as sold by Remington, Federal or any of the other companies offering this type of ammo in whichever bullet weight you prefer to shoot.
No. The savage has its own chamber design. Use only what is stamped on the barrel.
The ammunition is called .357 Sig. Most pistols in .357 Sig can shoot the .40 S&W when you drop in a .40 S&W barrel.
Yes. The Marlin model 556 is a bolt action shotgun. It has a detachable magazine which holds two rounds and one round in the pipe for a total of three rounds. It is able to shoot 3 inch ammunition.
Most blank guns are simply not strong enough to contain the pressure of a live cartridge.
They both go "bang".
A 41 magnum caliber revolver will shoot 410 gauge shotgun shells but is not recommended. The shot will lead the barrel rifling. There are also adaptors you can put in a shotgun that allow you to fire pistol/rifle ammunition.
Due to the current lack of availability, you best shoot whatever you can find. Beyond that, CCI and Wolf make fine ammunition.
I have a marlin 55 12 Ga and Im wondering if it shoots 3" and 3 3/4" shells and if steel shots are recommended for the barrel?
No. You can only fire .410 shotgun shells in it. You should never attempt to fire a different ammunition than is stamped on the barrel, even if it appears to fit. If the pressure is too high, or the cartridge doesn't fit, at the best your gun will not shoot properly. At the worst it can explode and kill you.
